    I wonder how you say in greek when you for instance stream a video and the internet connection is low and the video pauses constantly? I thought about σκαλώνω but I'm not sure...

    first of all "σκαλώνω" is o.k. to me. Also, you can use the verbs "σέρνομαι" or "κολλάω" ("η σύνδεση κολλάει/σέρνεται"), that apply not only to streaming videos but also to internet connection in general. If you focus only on the pauses, the only I can think of right now is "κάνει διακοπές".

    You can also use λαγκάρει, which comes from lag. See here:
    As for Perseas' words, I'd use σέρνεται, κολλάει, κάνει διακοπές but not σκαλώνει.

    I don't know though how many Greeks use "λαγκάρω". It's the first time I hear that. As to "σκαλώνω", neither would I use it (I think), but if I heard it, I would understand what the problem is.

    I've heard it, mostly by young people and - interestingly - by people who like computers as a hobby (not professionals that is).

    Yeah, I guess λαγκάρω is kind of gamers slang, maybe
